    The update 2 was a mistake and got removed from the update servers after a couple of hours. I see people that regret updating it because it breaks some things like notifications and phone rings.

    For most handsets, it's only a preparation for installing Windows 10 through Windows Insider.

    I missed out. Tried everything and couldn't get it. My wife easily got it for her 1320 though and loves it.

    I have also updated, and to me it seems the phone is a bit snappier, the battery life is slightly better, also have the new settings look.

    Update 2 that was bundled with W10 TP few days back had propagated the same bugs related to notification sound and ringtones in W10 build on my phone. Anyways, back to 8.1 now ;-)

    I got the Update 2 with new settings, pin settings to start and new app permissions but no "double tap to lock" on navigation bar. Anyone with a 930 get this feature?

    This feature is currently available for phones having onscreen Navigation bar. 930 has capcitive navigation keys.

    I installed it and everything seemed fine. But it makes the screen work badly. You can discover that looking at characters in bing news or facebook from browser: some lines will be a bit blurry or a little cutted...

    Can you take a screenshot? I doubt, that the update directly affects the display drivers. At least I don't think that they are supposed to do that!

    Try a hard reset.

    Already tried the reset, it was uneffective... But i found the defect be in line with the scaling problems they talked about...

    You can still get the update. My 930 is updating right now. Surprised they didn't block this.

    I got it and am pretty happy with it. No issues for me yet. Favorite feature: Settings groups. Least favorite: All apps -> on the bottom of the start screen. Nit picky? Yes, and I'm probably the only one who doesn't like that..

    Again. Post a screenshot! I would like to see what you mean.

    My 3 day experience with a Lumia 930 on GDR 2:
    Great settings menu, same battery life as before, no performance problems (I strongly recommend a hard reset, because I tried it without and I noticed some lag which wasn't there before the update and these issues are gone now), no problems with notifications, no problems with microfone and the app permission settings work as you would expect. For example I accidently declined Lumia Camera 5 the permission to use the microfone and when I started the app i got a message that there is no permission for the microfone- the message brought me right into the settings, I changed it back and it worked.

    I do not regret the update even it took me several hours because I had to flash my device first.

    I can't post a screenshot, already downgraded, and i'm not going to upgrade again.

    The problem is little. And perhaps you won't notice it, but i'm a bit obsessed about the screen, so had to downgrade.

    Try this, open bing news, and watch how characters are displayed. You should notice the top pixel of some random letter missing, in other points there is too black around some characters.
    It should be evident watching facebook newsfeed from the app, in the square of shared articles...

    This is due to the pentile 1080p not yet perfectly supported in the upgrade, and it's the cause 930 wasn't selected for the win 10 preview.

    I've had a 920 constantly on DP and i noticed that when the released the full upgrade with the firmware, the phone got snappier.

    930 firmware is not optimized for GDR 2 and i'm not going to use it again, i fear to shorten the life of the display matrix uncorrectly driven...

    Well I am sure that by the time the lifespan of the screen is at risk, you would have upgraded to a new phone
